What does ‘Activation Failed: Invalid or missing railgun token or tag’ mean when starting Railgun?
When starting the Railgun service for the first time, you may see an error that states:
Starting railgun Error starting Railgun as a daemon. Running in foreground... Error activating: Activation Failed: Invalid or missing railgun token or tag. [fail]
There are two possible causes for this error:
- The railgun.conf file doesn’t have the proper public IP (
activation.railgun_hostin newer versions of Railgun) and/or activation token (
- There’s a chance the Railgun created for the domain in your account was not created properly. Delete it, create a new one, and try again.
If the issue persists after trying both of these steps, please contact support.
